the sources of american power our, that you say the pentagon or the size of the federal debt. like, if you're the biggest debtor into a big issue certain power. are you optimistic that these can be really reversed, like 30 seconds because i'm very optimistic about america's future. i think we have to approach that future with confidence. we have to get our house right at home, but we have to be prepared to engage with confidence abroad. we still are that shining light on the hill that people look to. they are disappointed when we don't deliver. we are disappointed when we don't deliver. i think we can, both at home and abroad, find a way to move forward. it's not going to be simple. our government takes longer to get things done than the real economy would like. we've got to intercept the real and the political economy, but at the end of day am optimistic that we can make progress. >> thank you. ladies and gentlemen, thank you so much.

the 2014 handover to afghan authorities. our pentagon correspondent chris lawrence has been looking into this. what's being considered for a u.s. role in afghanistan after the scheduled pull-out? >> reporter: if you thought 2014 was going to be the end of u.s. troops' involvement, that does not look to be the case. although publicly pentagon officials say it's too early, our source, a u.s. official is telling us that there are several options being discussed inside the pentagon, one of which is to keep about 10,000 u.s. troops in afghanistan past 2014. a small number of those troops would be special operations forces that would be dedicated to counterterrorism missions. the rest of the forces would either be training or advising afghan troops or providing medical support and air support, things like that. there are other options with fewer troops, some with more troops. but this one fits right in the middle of that spectrum. he also told me that one of the deal-breakers when it came to iraq, immunity for u.s. troop, in other words, that they wouldn't be prosecuted under local laws l
for the pentagon and fluctuations in global energy prices can have dramatic, dramatic effects on defense spending. for every $10 increase in a barrel of oil it costs the american military annually an extra $1.3 billion. recognizing the potential instability that d.o.d.'s current energy needs can cause, military experts from across the various branches of the armed services have begun looking at ways to cut energy use and find energy alternative. now, i continued to hear all of this discussion about how this is somehow a green agenda and it's a suber havesive plot and it's being forced on a resistant president. and i just want to take a minute or two, mr. president, and say i don't think anything could be further from the truth and just wanted to describe for a moment why i feel that way. first, those who oppose defense energy initiatives often argue in today's fiscal environment, the country can't afford to waste money on energy programs when it's necessary to provide for our nation's security. i don't believe, mr. president, it is an either/or proposition, because my view is that an investment i
close to. that the pentagon's got to make a contribution and if there is anything on healthcare, it's gotta be about reforming it, bringing the costs down, not cutting benefits. >> eliot: let's drill down a couple of pieces of this. what do you think the underlying ratio should be between cost cutting and revenue generation. last summer it was 10 to 1 in terms of cutting costs to revenue. thankfully the deal didn't get done. should it be one-to-one? where would you like to see this happen? >> you know, i actually don't know that number because i think the question is i think we need about a trillion and a half from revenues and the revenues have to come, as i mentioned the way president obama was campaigning. and then the pentagon's gotta make a contribution and we've already cut a trillion and a half dollars on domestic discretionary. we'll have to cut more to get a deal. but with the ratio is, i haven't been that close to what the numbers are. >> eliot: one of the issues lurking out there is the debt ceiling and
the pentagon, thank you, let me begin with a straight forward question, would this deal have happened with or without secretary of state clinton. >> this is a good question lou, answer is yes, and no. remember that 24 hours ago, hamas had agreed to this ceasefire. the egyptians convinced them on agree, and many of us were expecting ceasefire at 9:00 p.m. local time, 24 hours ago. it happened 24 hours later, remember, secretary of state clinton was landing at about that time in jerusalem. and israelis wanted to see if perhaps she could, come up with a few more perhaps agreements from the palestinians, she went to ramallah and i am told she appealed to the president, mahmoud abbas. the palestinian president, who has no real bearing on the situation in gaza. but she appealed to him not to about on november 29 to the u.n., and seek observer states for you palestinians that would be a back-channel way to achieve statehood. i am told that he did not agree to that shetion went to cairo, where the one thing she did achieve is she got the egyptian president, mohamed morsi to be the address if
and shaped by general jones who has unique experience of serving in the pentagon and in the military and as the national security adviser to the president. he made a point that i was familiar with based on my experiences, that we had all these different agencies and departments and people all over the government as well as in the congress that had parts of the energy package but it never had a way to be brought together to take a look at what should be our energy policy and came up with this idea of the council which we are recommending where you pull all of the different departments chaired by the department of energy secretary, agencies, that will reach out to all the different interested parties to make sure their views are being taken into consideration. to do this quadrennial agency review somewhat similar to what they have done at the pentagon. it is very different from what they do at the pentagon. it is a technique that i have observed that works and is helpful for the department of the defense. talking about a strategy, a broader view, and then through the report get into th
for the military. the pentagon is well funded. your regional commander could go out. i agree with your critique. the way to get to the source of the critique is not that, you know, susan rice or anybody else doesn't understood what you said. it's to follow the money and give the u.s. the tools. >> shouldn't we rethink where the money goes? one of the reasons diplomatic security is underfunded. the cuts between the state department. the balance between state, diplomacy and military are way off. >> i think the overall issue is susan rice, should she be confirmed and will she be confirmed? john kerry could get the massachusetts seat. that may be in the background. the bottom line is confirmation. you are supposed to tell the truth. if you don't, it's bad. no question. there ought to be instant replay, overwhelming evidence to overrule it when the referee is wrong. there needs to be overwhelming evidence not to support the president's nomination. i think it's unfair to play on this one. >> we have an amazing bit of tape of john mccain making a somewhat similar argument. we'll show it to you after t
for the military solution because the pentagon is well funded and your regional commander has much more ability to go out and act on behalf of the u.s. than the ambassador does. so i agree with your critique, but the way to get to the source of the critique is not that susan rice doesn't understand, but it's to follow the money and -- >> but should we rethink our priorities as to where the money goes. the cuts to the state department, the balance between defense and state, diplomacy and military, are way off in our country. >> i think the issue with susan rice and will and should she be confirmed? i think the republicans would rather have john kerry give them a chance to get the massachusetts seat. but the bottom line is confirmation, yeah, you're supposed to tell the truth and if you don't, that's bad, no question. but there ought to be like instant replay. you have to have overwhelming evidence to overrule it, even when the referee is wrong. there has to be overwhelming evidence to not support the president's nomination. >> we have an amazing bit of tape of john mccain making a somewhat simil
. with regard to iran you i think the president and pentagon do not want war with iran, but there are people in this country certain lynette net and his allies in the united states on the threat to build nuclear weapons by iran, i think the president doesn't want to fight another war. i think he is right in. that we have to engage in nation building at home, she right in tune with the american people. >> i think it's very clear the weak american leadership sent a signal to the middle east that we don't want to lead. iraq, one of more tragic aspects we lost over 4,000 brave young americans. we intended to leave a residual force. president didn't want to see it happen. we see iraq unrafblg. we see a dramatic increase to violence. they just condemned their vice president to death. al-qaeda is now set up training camps in western iraq. iranian airplanes are flying iraq from syria and our failure to intervene in any way and establishing a safe zone, al-qaeda is coming in there in droves. when this thing ends and all conflicts do end, we're going to have one heck of a time with the al-qaeda elemen
. >>> some fascinating new information from the pentagon contains details we never knew before about the killing of osama bin laden. cnn's brian todd has been reading newly released e-mails that fill in some of the gaps in the story of what happened. >> reporter: tense and very secretive transmissions as the aircraft carrier waits for the body of osama bin laden. it's may 2, 2011, the al qaeda leader has just been killed. two u.s. navy admirals use code words to describe bin laden. the commander says fed ex delivered the package, both trucks are safely on route home base. the e-mails heavily redakted have just been released by the defense department responding to a freedom of information act washdog. a few days earlier that strike dog asked do i need any special religious ceremonial preparations. after bin laden's buried at sea, an admiral describes the scene. tradition traditional procedures for islamic burial was followed. the deceased body was washed then placed in a white sheet then a military officer read prepared religious remarks which were translated into arabic. tipped up wh
and the unique experience even at the pentagon and security advisor to the president. he made an early point i was familiar with based on my experience with 35 years of congress that we have all these different agencies and departments and people all over the government as well as congress that had parts of the energy package that never had a way to take a look at what should be our policy and came up with this idea the council to recommend here comeau recalled the different departments chaired by the department of energy and secretary in agencies that reach out to all the interested parties to make sure their views take consideration. but it is royal energy review. it's very different from what they do at the pentagon. with this technique but it's helpful and it will be hall posters talk about a strategy in the broader view through the quaternary old report to really get into details. and the congress of course we've got all these different committees as part of the jurisdiction. i had a simple solution. i called the two minute she -- saint pete, we need some, but not. every now and then i wo
on the plans for u.s. troop withdrawal from ban began in 2014. the white house and the pentagon must gauge the best strategy moving for as the afghans position to provide the bulk of security. one plan will rely on special forces to keep up the pressure on terrorists that is only one plan. jennifer griffin live at the pentagon with more details. jennifer? >> reporter: hi, jenna. it is not surprising now that the election is over we're starting to hear plans floated through the press what the u.s. military commitment wit look like post-2014 in afghanistan. u.s. dip low mats are negotiating a withdrawal of forces agreement with afghanistan. general john allen was preparing for his confirmation hearing for his next job when he got pulled into the e-mail scandal that brought down david petraeus. at that time he was expected to begin formulating a post-2014 plan before leaving afghanistan and becoming supreme allied commander in europe. he is now back in afghanistan and reports are he would like to keep about 60,000 troops in afghanistan through the fighting season of next year. defense secreta
troubling of all according to the pentagon, the country's national security would be in serious jeopardy. if congress and the white house do not act. chris stirewalt is our fox news digital politics editor p.o.w. or play on foxnews.com. they cut the deal that put the automatic spending cuts in place and these automatic tax hikes in place thinking this will never happen. they went back, said all right, now that we have it in place let's try to fix it. well they failed. there wasn't the political will to deal with it at the time they passed. there wasn't the political will at the time they tried to deal with it and it was a complete political debach kill. now you have some people saying let it happen. the let's see what happens. we may be in a better negotiating pitch if we let it happen and american people are the ones who are going to pay. >> well, megyn, these are not just rank-and-file democrats talking about this. patty murray, who is the head of the senate democrats campaign arm. these are democrats who say, hey look, if the republican won't yield, if though won't give us what we wan
to our pentagon correspondent barbara starr. barbara, what are you learning? >> well, wolf, north korea says it is pursuing trying to launch a satellite into space. but intelligence services around the world doubt that that is true. this satellite image of a north korean missile launch pad was just snapped in the last 24 hours. u.s. government officials and private experts say it shows the same types of preparations including trucks and fuel tanks not seen since april when a long-range missile failed seconds after launch. north korea claimed then it was just trying to launch a satellite. the new digital globe image and this one taken just days before don't yet show a missile. but with these kinds of preps, a launch could happen in about three weeks if a missile is put on the launch pad according to analysis by digital globe. north korea watchers say the new leader, kim jong-un may be responding to internal political pressure from hardliners. >> on the other hand, he may also want it himself. he may decide it's the right kind of provocation just before the south korean president election
ask people what they think the sources of american power of art, the pentagon or the size of the federal debt. if you are the biggest debtor in the world that gives you a certain power. are you optimistic that these can be reversed? >> i'm very optimistic about america's future. i think we have to approach the future with confidence. we have to get our house quite yet how. we have to be prepared to engage with confidence abroad. we still are the shining light on the hill that people look to. they are disappointed when we don't deliver. we are disappointed when we don't deliver. i think we can, both at home and abroad find a way look for it. is not going to be simple. our government takes longer to get things done. the real economy. at the end of the day i'm optimistic that we can -- >> ladies and cinnamon.
